Rocked my first poster/flier for an out of town event! Love the illustration of the deejays and host by DEAL. Thanks to Daveed L. for trusting me to work on this quickly. The second flier is for LA JUNTA’s monthly late night session called PIÑA, held at DTLA’s El Dorado Bar. We’re there every 2nd Friday, but last night’s event was a special one celebrating LOCATORA RADIO’s first year of podcasthood. Thanks to our friends Diosa Femme and Mala Muñoz, and guest deejay SIZZLE FANTASTIC, we had our first line out the door after six previous events. We’re growin’!
Even though we announced that LA JUNTA will be celebrating the 2018 New Year’s Eve by hosting our PIÑA event on Sunday December 31st, the upcoming second Friday of the month falls during this week on DECEMBER 8, meaning it’s our regular PIÑA party! Above is he flier that I created for it last night. When I sent it out to them this morning, the team immediately alerted me that I had made a couple of mistakes on the date. AND I realized that I hadn’t added the signature pineapple in the background. Anyway I love how it turned out! The pink, chocolate, black and bamboo green tones look great together.
Pictured on the flier is the Vietnamese pop group “3 Trái Táo” (The Apples 3, circa 1975).
If you’re anywhere near DTLA this Friday night, definitely stop by El Dorado DTLA! 9pm / Free.
